ANews Pleroma

a sleeping whale


Announcing the Anarchist News Pleroma! The ANews feed is a low volume stream of curated content and commentary from around the website as a supplementary way to interact with the site. The ANews Pleroma is part of a federated microblogging platform that is hosted by anarchist friends on the Pleroma instance.

Check it out and follow here:

What is Pleroma? Like the somewhat better-known Mastodon, it's part of the fediverse, a decentralized network of self-hosted servers that speak a [twitter-like] language called ActivityPub. It's like mail: you can have your mail on any one of thousands of servers, and they all speak to each other. (Pleroma also speaks OStatus, so it can integrate with GNU Social, Friendica, Hubzilla and Mastodon!) If you already have a mastodon etc account, it's easy to follow Anarchist News, and if you register for an account, you can follow and interact with everyone on mastodon etc.

This is a quick 101 introduction to Pleroma via that is also linked on the main Pleroma website.


"We hope that Anarchy Planet becomes a place where anarchists and their friends can find each other, learn about anarchism, discuss the topics of importance to them and be linked to the universe of anarchy. We will do this by providing the infrastructure for anarchists to communicate to the world and each other. We will do this with communications services (blogs, internal IM, secure IM, email, & more over time) and sites that connect us to each other."

just what we need, more online relating, and perpetuation of the @planet brand.

i'll probably check it out.

Don't tell me what I need, Dad. You can't sit with us!

Ahh yes "the @planet brand" and their dastardly offerings of free, anonymous services and infrastructure beyond Big Social Media. Those bastards and their branding!

The alt-right regularly gets kicked off social media. The purpose of social media is mass surveillance, not supporting far-right weirdos that the state dislikes almost as much as anarchists. I'm sick of these dumbass anarchist narratives about the alt-right.

I’m sick of dumbass non-anarchists whining on this page about anarchists. Relevant point of sharing this tweet is that another account, this one not even explicitly anarchist, got banned, so it makes sense for a lot of people, for a lot of reasons, to switch away from these platforms to the many other alternatives that there are.

Yeah, you got that you non-anarchist lurkers? Fuck off! Only real Anarchists should speak up. Only real anarchists know what talking about real anarchy is about and thats what i wanna hear, real anarchists talking bout real Anarchy.
Stop trying to confuse us real anarchists, we can see through your non-anarchist ploys.

I know I agree, one 2ould think Trump was a vicious nazi/fascist war criminal the way these leftists raille against him and his supporters. That's democracy folks, the lesser of 2 evils, and until you can attain autonomous independence, you're stuck with it.

Again I'm perplexed.

How trustworthy is some social media platform set up by forever more suspicious "l33t hackers" with a record of posting/enabling some high-school level of petty racist, ableist, homophobic insults on the IRC?

Or how is Lil Brother Plast any more reliable than Big Brother Zuck?

Because FOSS?

And I thought the Inhabit joke was enough...

Bitch please!

You doubled down on supporting online hate speech, on an anarchist outlet, in the name of (guess what...) same old free speech bullshit logic. So how did 4chan's /pol became the biggest internet hangout for fascist grunts? Because Christopher Poole had the same very *brilliant* liberal position about free speech.

Trust, especially online (when it's people you don't live with IRL) is something you gotta EARN. And in that account you already got yourselves a negative balance. So your only way to buy it back is... "you're not invited"?

Well, sorry, I already was not interested to *join*, you bad eggs.

was doing anything at all in real life (at least as demonstrated by beeping and inviting people to non-existent events). as it is, bad-egger you just come off like another person who's taking nonsense way too seriously.
speaking of "building trust online" (as if that's possible... or appropriate)

Is this that usual "authenticity is impossible online, so let's be fucking manipulative jerks, because we can" shitty narrative? Authenticity is the same off and online. If you're a phony, a spook or a rotten dilettante irl, this'll just be reflected online, no matter the texts or authors you're quoting, no matter your support to anarchistic things like riots, etc.

Deceit is vastly overrated... when you're fake, it's showing more than you know.

am saying that online has limitations that IRL does not, and pretending or acting like it doesn't is asking to be disappointed.
